Ridley Scott: ‘Blade Runner’ Sequel Is Best Script Harrison Ford Has ‘Ever Read’

If you’re worried that the upcoming “Blade Runner” sequel won’t measure up to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic, rest assured. Harrison Ford apparently thinks the script is “the best thing (he’s) ever read.”

Director Ridley Scott told MTV News that the screenplay is not only “written and ready to go,” but that Ford loves it.

“I sent him this (script) and he said, ‘Wow, this is the best thing I’ve ever read,’ so it’s very relevant to what happened (in) the first one,” Scott told MTV News. “I’m not just doing a sequel with lots of action and see how far we can go with the special effects because you can’t really. ‘Blade Runner’ kind of landed on a somehow very credible future. And it’s very difficult to change that because it’s been so influential with everything else.”

Although Scott is debating whether he’ll direct the sequel, it looks like Ford will most certainly be reprising his role as Rick Deckard.

Alcon Entertainment has been working on the project since early 2011.

Scott also talked about another highly anticipated sequel, “Prometheus 2,” which will continue to explore the relationship between Noomi Rapace’s Elizabeth Shaw and Michael Fassbender’s David, whom Scott teased might not be bodyless for long.

“Once that head goes back on, he’s really dangerous, but he’s also very seductive,” Scott said. “So maybe he’ll persuade her to help him put the head back.”
